Exclusions Policy

Ark Boulton Academy is committed to ensuring that all students make excellent progress and develop outstanding character.  We believe that anyone who is successful must develop self-discipline and be given autonomy to make the right choices. We also want our students to understand their role in developing a common purpose in our academy, our community and the wider world.

This policy has been created to provide a framework for staff, pupils and parents in developing and maintaining an ethos of exemplary conduct. Such an ethos will enable pupils to learn in, and have responsibility for, a calm, purposeful and orderly environment. It will enable staff to work in, and have responsibility for, an environment where learning and teaching are respected and valued. Finally, the policy will allow parents to have confidence their child is learning in an academic environment and is safe, respected and valued. 

The policy is underpinned by the Student Code of Conduct as this sets out our expectations of students. The Code of Conduct is not an aspiration but a consistent expectation of every student. We believe in our students and we believe each and every one of them wants to conduct themselves to the highest standards and that these high standards will serve them well both at school and into adulthood. The Code of Conduct will enable pupils to develop habits of excellence and foster a sense of inner discipline, self-regulation and respect for the rights of others.
